The Twelve Apostles are world-recognised icons of the Great Ocean Road. These giant rock stacks soar from the swirling waters of the Southern Ocean and are a central feature of the spectacular Port Campbell National Park, only 12 km east of Port Campbell. The dramatic and imposing limestone cliffs that are the backdrop to the Apostles tower up to 70 m, while the tallest of the rock stacks is around 45 m high.
While anytime of the day provides great views, sunrise and sunset are particularly impressive for the blazing hues created, and are times that are especially popular with photographers. The extensive boardwalks and viewing platforms offer unparalleled vantage to experience the sweeping, awe-inspiring vistas.

And if you’re interested in finding out exactly how many Apostles there are in the Twelve Apostles ‘family’ (Eight? Nine? 10? 11? Logic would suggest that, with a name like the 12 Apostles, there would be 12. But do 12 exist?) click here.
